If you have any questions, please contact the main office at (215)400-7660.  Please make sure your students get enough sleep, are on time and present for school daily, and are encouraged.  We will be having incentives and rewards throughout testing, including prizes for students who attend on time each day!

We had an overwhelming number of students that wanted to attend so we’ve scheduled a separate trip for our 7-8 grade students, which will now occur on Monday, May 6th.  Students will see Avengers: End Game. Please make sure your student has told their teacher if they want to attend.

Updated SDP Volunteer Policy
The clearance requirement for chaperones attending trips was recently updated by the Board of Education.

All field trip and chaperone activities require Volunteer Paperwork to be on file in the school’s Main Office.  That means you’ll need clearances to be a chaperone.

If you have additional questions or concerns regarding the volunteer clearance process, please reach out to the District’s Family and Community Engagement Office at volunteer@philasd.org or (215) 400-4180.

You can also speak with Mr. Brown (antbrown001@gmail.com) or Mr. Rich (rjliuzzi@gse.upenn.edu).
